Growing Up Sideways

When I was a boy I was too needy. No doubt a byproduct of ‘Growing up’ without a father.

I have long ago forgiven myself for this flaw and the lack of awareness I processed at that time.

I put far too much emphasis on friends and how difficult I must have made it for them to be nice. It was wrong to ask that much.

None of them are here now to see how things have changed. Sometimes I don’t even think of them.
